The Christmas Song
Pamagotchi Released Dec 17, 2012

A couple of weeks ago, a collaboration was born between Peppina, Metaphorest and myself! We decided to create a traditional Christmas ballad just in time for the 2012 holidays. Peppina came up with the concept and melody, and Metaphorest penned the beautiful lyrics, before we all put our voices together to produce the final mix!


We had so much fun making this and I want to thank the amazing Peppina and Metaphorest for the opportunity to work with them!


Merry Christmas everyone!


PS: We would love to hear remixes of this! More instruments, more voices...I'll get the stems up ASAP!


Concept, Melody and Instruments by Peppina


Lyrics and Harmony Concept by Metaphorest

LYRICS:


It’s Christmas Eve


And a lonely old house


Sits silently up on the hill


Wishing for someone


To fill it again


With life, love and Christmas goodwill


 


They say that it’s haunted


Since this day each year


The empty old house comes alive


With smoke in the chimney


And twinkling lights


The place tries to tempt you inside


 


See one winter in wartime


On Christmas Eve night


Many long years ago


The old house was buzzing


With festive cheer


And the family sang ‘Let it Snow’


 


When they'd sung all their carols


They sat down to eat


Then sounded a siren so shrill


On that sad Christmas Eve


Those poor souls had to leave


Their happy old house on the hill


 


CHORUS


When carols ring out in December


Wrapped in a blanket of snow


One lonely house remembers


Christmasses long ago.


 


Now it’s Christmas Eve


And the lonely old house


Longs for a friend to stop by


But there’s no one in sight


On this wintery night


Who would dare set foot inside


 


But one lonely soul


A man new to the town


Has been looking for lodgings in vain


He asks and he begs


But all anyone says


Is ‘we’re full, sir, now please go away’


 


Then a flicker of hope


From the hilltop glows


What a wonderful, welcoming sight


So he hikes up the hill


To the lonely old house


Where he hopes he can stay for the night


 


There he dines like a king


And he dances and sings


To the tunes the old piano plays


And together the man


and the old house rejoice


As the bells ring out for Christmas Day
